As per the schedule, Apple has released the second iOS 13.4 Beta & iPadOS Beta for developers. It is just a week since the release of iOS 13.4 Public Beta 1. And the new update just released recently which comes with some changes and new features. Analyzing past updates Apple is more focused on providing better user experience more than providing new features. Also in this update, Apple changed some settings that improve the user experience. As usual, we can expect the public beta release in a few days so everyone can try the second beta on their iPhones. Here we will explain how to download the iOS 13.4 Beta 2 and install it on your iPhone.
Apple also releases updates for macOS, TvOS and WatchOS along with the iOS 13.4 Beta 2. It comes with many new features and changes which include Mail toolbar, CarKey, Home button, Assistive touch and more. The notifications are also reportedly fixed in this beta update. Well, many of the issues have been fixed in this beta but still, some of the bugs remain like rotation problems.
